Time for a Tornado Cup round 1 write up...
Thanks again to Daylesford Speedway for putting us on this past weekend. Due to lack of numbers for their own meet, the big cars were cancelled...but volunteers still ran a show for us, with canteen and all! Thanks for your work in prepping the track and providing trophies for the Daylesford Track Championship(which we will get to later).
The track presented this time around was almost back to its 2019 best! It was smooth and once rolled in by the 160’s, it raced better through each of the heat groups.
With a touch of water at the break, it continued to offer multiple racing lines, even until the 160’s started!
We had four cars competing again in our novice class. Unfortunately, Leo seemingly struggled with some mechanical issues throughout the day and was a touch off the pace.
Will in the v28 in his second meet, showed some improvement in his consistency of performance. He pushed the more experienced duo of Roman and Stuart a couple of times, holding down second place for plenty of laps throughout the heats and final.
But the big battle up front was consistently between the ‘seasoned’ novices of the v29 and the v50. It was a cracking first heat as they battled traffic with Stuart taking the win. Roman would win the next to heats in convincing fashion.
Come final time, Stuart would jump to the lead on lap 1. On lap 5, Roman got a touch loose, having to restart from the rear. Stuart would drive away and lead all the way to the chequers while Will would do his best to hold off a determined Roman. With 4 laps to go, Roman takes second with Will finishing a hard fought third 🏁
With the track quickening after our first novice race. Heat 1 would see all racers jump well and finish exactly in their starting positions! Jed would take first from Chase and Holly.
Heat two was a great great battle between the front row cars for 5 laps. With Cruz leading, contact from the V1 would see Chase put to the rear on the restart. Cruz would streak away to win from Tyler and Holly.
Heat 3 was another excellent battle between our fast developing Restricted class. Holly would hold on for the ten laps to win but it was anyone’s race to the final flag as the v66 and V1 both pushed hard to the line.
On paper, it was a fairly straightforward final. But, again, our juniors are showing great maturity and development each week. Tyler would start pole, but the V1 would get the jump on the outside to lead. Whist positional changes were rare in the final, all kids races well and put plenty of pressure on until the last lap. Despite some hustle and bustle late, Chase would take the win from Tyler and Cruz 🏁
It was an interesting day for this class. There was plenty of action and plenty of shuffling of position throughout. Also, there was great maturity shown in some great drives!
Heat 1 saw some contact between cars end the race for the v14 on lap 3 after he threw a chain. Out of three, Leah would hold on to take victory from the V1 and v2 who both made plenty of ground during the race.
Heat 2 saw an increase in grip and speed on track positional changes almost seemed impossible. Logan would win from Leah and Arthur.
Heat 3 again saw a fast track with passing proving difficult. It wasn’t from a lack of trying with plenty of drivers giving themselves a chance. Ultimately, Jamie would drive away for a solid win from Jake and Arthur.
The 120 final was a fairly hectic affair, with a couple of stoppages and a little controversy. An early incident would see the V1 relegated to rear of field after making some early gains from the back row. Throughout the race, the rear most top points cars almost all change several positions throughout the race. Amazingly, Leah steered her v26 expertly from position 8 to the front of the field by lap 8. Granted, she was helped by some banging and crashing going on, but on the restart from that point, Leah showed great maturity, holding on for an awesomely raced victory from the rear!
The battles for the minor placing were crazy at times and at times, they were crazy good! Eventually, Hudson would take second, from Jake, Logan, Cody and Jamie...but at any stage in the last two laps, any of those drivers could have taken a podium position!
Great driving again 120’s! 🏁
It was a touch slippery early before the big kids settled into a rhythm. Mallacai started off of pole in the v51 and would hold on well to win from Jayden and Jemma.
Heat 2 saw the track quickening with grip all over. The team green cars started off the front row and Chevy in the v43 would push her bro on the V1 all the way to the finish. Callan was hot on her heels with Jemma again shouting speed in 4th.
In heat 3, the track was still racy but was showing signs of drying. Again, they settled into rhythm and Jayden would race away to win from the very consistent Jemma. Chevy and Jett would take 3rd and 4th. The only real positional changes were on the back half of the field as they jostled for position throughout.
The final was going to be an interesting affair. As with all classes, the highest points were at the rear. But with the track really beginning to dry out, anything could happen..and it did!
There would be four restarts before a lap was run! Plenty of issues arose with drivers on the back trying to make the most of each start...the result was a little bit of chaos.
With rolling laps, the track would dry further, not offering much up on the outside for the first time all day. As our senior class finally got under way, Jemma would quickly make the most of the mess around her, steering the v45 into second place by lap 3...not bad starting from 8th!!
As the race progressed, there continued to be stoppages. The V1 would be put infield on lap 7 for two primary cause stoppages.
Moves were being made through the field, but progress was slow and drivers were more relying on errors rather than taking on the track.
Blake, Jemma and Callan were holding steady as the front three cars and all three were giving it their all. On a restart with a couple of laps to go, the two lead cars would come together. In a last moment of controversy for the day, both cars were restarted in their positions, and that’s how the final placings would stand. Jayden would get up the inside of Chevy with a lap to go to take 4th.
Overall, it was an interesting race with plenty going on! There was some great skills on show. But, it may be a chance to reinforce to our older drivers, that you can race aggressively, but, if you not clean you will be reprimanded!
Well done to all our place getters and top point scorers 🏁
So, that’s it for round 1 of Tornado. It was also the last round of the Daylesford track championship. Points are on our website and thanks to Daylesford Speedway for their pics of place getters on the weekend. Have a look at their Facebook page to see your kids smiling faces 👍🏻
I hope you are all ready for a big day Saturday at the Vic Title! See you all there 👍🏻👌🏻🏁
Good evening all,
I hope you enjoyed our Tornado Cup Rnd 1 race meet today at Daylesford...hopefully it’s a sign of what’s to come in that series!..but firstly...
I am sorry for the late rundown of our last race meet, Daylesford Round 5 of the Championship, but better late than never I suppose...and how was that drive from JMac in the Classic? Never looked like losing! And the A1 going to Veal when it looked for all money like a washout! A lot has happened since then 😋
Anyway, back to our Round 5 fixture at Daylesford...
Firstly, I’d like to thank all our volunteers and partners at Daylesford who took the time to get our race meet up and running. From our lap scorers and steward to track preppers and pit organisers ...it all adds up to get is running each week.
Secondly, I’m afraid I didn’t catch much of the racing on the day as I had several commitments which prevented me from viewing most of it. Whilst I know there are several sites that I can watch each race on, I also have an extremely busy life at this time of year and I just haven’t been able to get across all that happened. I did watch most of the finals, but this post will just focus on the winners...it breaks my heart not to give the racing the write up i feel it deserves, but it can’t be helped I’m afraid.
So, let’s get it out of the way early....ultimately, the track on the 19th didn’t reach the normally excellent surface that Daylesford normally provides. Unfortunately, the track dried out very early. Even with some water during the day, it didn’t handle all our races well and every class felt the effects. But, it was a track and we raced it as well as we could!
In our novice class, the first two heats would be won by Stuart with Roman coming second in both. The result was reversed in the third heat.
Stuart would start pole with Roman second and Leo third. On a dusty track, the order would not change throughout. Well done to the v50!
In the Jnr Res. Class, Jed would get the jump out of second on the grid and run away with the win from the V1 of chase. Holly would do the same in an all the way win in the second heat from Ryder. Chase would lead from position 1 from the drop of the green to the chequered flag in heat 3 ahead of the v69.
Points were tight in this one with Holly starting out of 1, Chase out of 2, Jed 3 amd Ryder 4. Holly would steer the v80 to victory with Jed second and Chase 3rd, but despite the one lane track, it was a decent race with the v66 and V1 pushing holly to the finish!
In our 120 open class, heat 1 saw the v27 of Jaime ster it home to victory. Logan was second from Arthur in third. The second heat would have Arthur take the lead in the third lap from the v64. This is how they finished with the v14 in 3rd. Logan would win the third heat from pole from Jake amd Jamie.
It was close in this one! Only 4 points separated the top four cars after heats! The order would be 55, 27, V1 and 14. In what was the race of the day, even on a dry dusty track! As they settled, Logan would lead from Arthur and Jamie with the 64 and 14 close behind. The V1 would go to the rear after an incident and Logan would lead from pole until the v27 of Jamie took the lead on the 17th lap. The last few laps saw a few positional changes with the top few cars being within striking distance. But it would finish 27, 55, 14. A great race on a one lane track!
Our premier class, the senior 160s. Heat 1 saw Jemma lead all the way from pole with Jayden getting past Zoe on the last lap to secure second place. Heat 2 was much the same, Chevy leading all the way with Jayden getting past Chelsea for second....except he came from 8th on the grid! The biggest move of the day! Our third heat saw the V1 of Jett get the jump from p2 and lead all the way. The v43 and v45 would take second and third.
Unfortunately, as the 160s are normally last on track, the track had become so one lane, it was always going to be tough to gain an advantage on a car in front.
The outside lane was always going to be disadvantaged. Chevy, topping the points, started pole and took a well earned victory. Out of three, Jemma followed closely behind, taking second place. Zoe amd Jayden would trade places a couple of time with the v4 eventually securing 3rd place.
Great job to all our winners, place getters and everyone for competing hard each week!
Keep an eye out tomorrow for the tornado results 👍🏻
I hope this disappointingly cool start to summer is treating you well enough so far.
Laang hosted our round three fixture on Saturday and we thank them for doing so.
Whilst the weather held off nicely, it remained cool throughout the day. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite stop the track from drying out too much. This would effect the racing on the day, especially with the more powerful 160 class. Drivers struggled to keep power through heats 2 and 3 and even into the finals. But overall, it was still a great days racing with rewards available for keeping your car as straight and smooth as possible.
Our Novices only had 4 competitors again this week with a late nom and a rookie allowing Stuart and Roman renew hostilities off the front row.
Stuart would take the first heat win and Roman the next two. In the third heat, Cruz and Leo would hold Stuart at bay but unable to catch Roman.
The final would see Roman tear away in front for several laps before an error and spin on the slippery track almost gave up the lead to Stuart...2 laps later another spin did see him give up first position although he did keep driving and held on for second. Leo crossed the line in third place.
In the Junior Restricted class, we had 6 very competitive cars doing battle. After the green flag dropped on the first heat there wasn’t much positional change with Chase, Jed and Holly taking the first 3 placings.
The second heat saw two cars not finish, Ryder having some mechanical issues and the V1 of Chase causing 2 stoppages abs sent infield. Jed and Holly would take out the first two placings with a determined Cruz working his way from 6th to third in a very nice drive.
The third heat saw Tyler start from pole. He had set himself a goal this season to win one heat race. He was extremely proud of himself as he held on for the ten laps for the win, with a fast finishing Chase on his tail. Holly would again take third.
The final was a little bit of a precession as the track started drying out again after the break. He’d would hold on for an all the way victory. The only place change was in the last lap. Holly was driving nicely, looking like holding on for an excellent second, but Chase wouldn’t give up, taking the place and relegating Holly to third.
Our 120 open class probably saw our most competitive pure racing of the day. There were plenty of positional changes, some excellent racing and a pinch of controversy thrown in to make it an extremely interesting class to watch.
Heat one had Leah holding Hudson at bay until the last corner. Some contact saw both drivers almost stall on the start finish line but it was all Jake needed to pounce and take the win. Arthur’s V1 was steers nicely from the rear to also make the most of the incident to steal third. Leah heldbin for second.
Plenty of positional changes at the lower end of heat two was fun to watch. But Hudson would roll away up front for a wire to wire victory. Jake’s form continued with a 2nd with Arthur again taking third.
The third heat was set to be a beauty with Arthur and Jake off the front row. Unfortunately, on the third lap Jake would throw a chain. Arthur cruised to victory. It was a cracking battle for second and third between siblings with Leah holding out Jamie all the way to the finish line.
With the track continuing to deteriorate, the front of the pack is where you wanted to be. But you still had to keep your lines smooth. Arthur jumped well from pole position and did just that...he drive away for an emphatic victory. His victory lap was definitely fun to watch also.
Behind him, Hudson seemed to not quite handle the conditions from his second place start, dropping a few positions. Other than that, no other positions changed throughout the final which was a shame. Plenty of kids were in good fighting positions but the track was becoming harder to handle lap by lap. Jack and Leah drove well and deserved their podiums.
Next are the 160’s...and as I suggested earlier...wow! What a day of racing. On a dry dusty track, the extra power the 160s bring...brought plenty of drivers unstuck! While the majority of issues came about from over racing in these conditions, they are all confident racers and want to win. You can’t begrudge them of that.
Our first heat saw almost the only race of the day with grip. It was a drive away victory for the V1 of Jett and solid passing saw placings to Zoe and Jayden “from the rear again, dad?” Lock. Jemma lost power in her v45 which would see her not finish...and those issues would continue through the heats.
The second heat brought some changing conditions. And incident on the first start caused a couple of cars to drop back in the field. Strangely, those cars were left back in the field after a full restart? Besides this, passing was becoming tricky. Chevy would control proceeding from the front, while the battle between Zoe and Jayden was fun to watch all race for 2nd and 3rd respectively.
The last heat was, frankly, carnage! Whilst damage was minimal...the heat dragged on for an eternity! With grip almost non existent, there seemed to be a stoppage every lap! Cars were spinning left right and centre. It seemed the only cars not to spin were the few that finished at the front. Callan moved well through the field to take the victory with controlled sting from Chevy and Blake seeing them in at 2 and 3.
Some water on the track in the break may have helped, but with the reversing of the schedule for finals, the track became dusty again by our feature. One place difference separates the first four cars on the grid. In an excellent sign of the development of our class structure, the top two places were held by two of this years rookies! Chevy would take pole position with Callan on her outside.
What was very obvious during the race and despite the ensuing carnage, was the battle between these top two cars, breaking away each restart while Zoe, Jett and Jayden jostled for position behind them.
So, without focusing on individual incidents, during the race, Jayden, Blake and Jett would all finish in the infield.
Callan and Riley would come together with solid front on contact damaging both cars. Bravely, both went on to finish the race.
Jemma, after making repairs to her car, would find herself in second place on what would become the last lap before, unfortunately, spinning out and the race was declared.
Meanwhile, at the front all along and controlling proceedings was Chevette! Leading from pole and taking out her maiden 160 victory in a well deserved day of smooth driving getting the rewards!
Zoe, also deserved her second place after a day of pushing the leading cars.
Amazingly, with no front right shock, Riley would cross the finish line in his v25 to take an excellent 3rd place!
Well done to all our racers today. Wether you finished on the podium or not, it was an excellent day at the track, in sometimes trying conditions. You should all be proud of yourselves!
Thanks to all the girls on the infield for rotating the lap scoring, flag waving and helping Kylie stewarding through the day. Couldn’t get a racemeet done without that effort!
Also, we would like to thank Phil ‘Gav White’ Walters for his amazing commentary throughout the day. It added to the day nicely
See you all on the 15th for Round 4 of our Championship at Avalon!
P.S. I had photos on my phone but I’ve lost them, sorry
Yesterday, we headed to sunny Daylesford...except Daylesford missed the memo and it was far from sunny! It was quite fresh all day, actually! But that helped keep a good amount of moisture in the track. It allowed for a fast surface with plenty of passing opportunities all day.
Firstly, we’d like to thank Daylesford Speedway for putting on a show and allowing us to fit in with the best interest of the kids at heart. Thanks to Norm Fisher again for chief stewarding. Robert Robinson for being the flag man. Also, Stephanie Balcombe and Sarah O'Shannassy for lap scoring on the day. Many hands make light work and everyone who chipped in, wether it was helping with the track, organising the dummy grids or helping getting a car up to spec so a kid can race...it is much appreciated!!
So, to the racing.
As I mentioned earlier, the track was smooth and fast all day. In our novice class, we had Leo making his debut to race along side his brother Roman. Each heat saw the leader after the first lap go on to win their heats, but each start provided some entertainment as our young ones jostled for the best position.
The final saw Roman take charge early with his brother Leo getting under Stuarts guard to cruise into second. They would roll around like this for the 12 laps of the feature, but Stuart wasn’t letting Leo get away that easy! To the last lap and it looked like Stuart had made a move to get past and retake second place, but Leo would hold him out to make it a Tancredi family 1-2! Stuart came a close 3rd with Cruz battling on in 4th.
Great job novices. You are continuing to learn each week and this week learning to handle an open wide fast track! Keep it up!
Our Jnr Res. class today continued to prove our drivers are developing each week. Tyler would start at the rear again for his last ROF start as a rookie.
The racing in this class was extremely competitive. Chase showed his class by jumping to the front and controlling the first two heats, leaving the others to battle on behind for the minors. The third heat saw Jed show he wouldn’t be outdone by doing the same. Whilst he controlled proceedings at the front, Chase and Ryder traded positions several times with Chase eventually holding the 69 car out to finish second.
The final would again prove a flag to flag race leader and a deserved win to the V1 of Chase. But behind him was a cracking battle between Jed and Ryder. Whole there wasn’t lots of positional changes, Ryder never gave up the fight! Eventually he attempted a move on the last corner, which unfortunately proved to be a little over ambitious, but if it came off...wow, what a move?! Ryder would spin out after making contact with Jed and all he could do was sit there on the track and watch as Tyler rolled past to take third. A little bit of reward for the young fella for never giving up!
Again, great racing from our Jnr Res drivers. Keep developing and we look forward to seeing you battle it out for the rest of the season!
On to our open 120s...what great racing we saw from these guys and gals. There was moves being made left right and centre! A couple of cars were brought unstuck by the track and probably the extra power the 120 brings. If you don’t stick the turns or the move you will end up facing the wrong way!
Cody and Eliza would start from the ROF for their last time. But starting from the back wouldn’t make the two of them any less racy! Both of them made up positions through their heats. Especially Cody who twice pushed up to finish 4th and 3rd in two of his heats, and holding 4th before an incident saw him shuffled back to the rear in the 3rd heat.
The rest of the drivers put an amazing show on across the board! We had 2 heat wins to Jamie and one to Hudson. But through all the heats we saw the V1 of Arthur, the 14 of Jake and the 55 of Logan pressing for places. Jake again had no luck today, a chain of in heat two denting his chances whilst Logan felt like he lacked just a little bit of speed after his car looked like a rocket taking out last weeks feature!
The final was an absolute doozy! Jamie earned his pole by 1 point over Hudson! After starting out of 3, the V1 unfortunately left the track on the second lap. He bravely rejoined but had given up half a lap to the field. After the drop of the flag, it was plain to see this was anyone’s race. The 64 jumped to lead after one lap and the 27 stayed hot on his tail. The lead changed on lap three but changed back on lap four. The 55 looked comfortable on third, but both the 14 and 2 were pressing also. The top five cars would trade blows and positions changed regularly for the full 20 laps of the feature! Unfortunately for Cody, contact after an attempted overtake for the lead would see his chain off and his day was done! After the restart, Hudson would hold on for an amazing win...but to the chequered flag he was pushed! Jake would bob up to take the 2nd place from Jamie. Logan finished 4th but it could easily have been first the way this race unfolded! It was a cracker!
Eliza, Arthur and Leah would battle on for position further back in the field.
Great racing from all 120s!
Lastly, we have our senior class, our 160s.
We had 5 cars this week who wear the white ribbon for the last time with Mallacai having to suffer through driving restricted for the last time! It will definitely put some pressure on the experienced drivers when they are drawn back in the field for Vic Title weekend! It will be entertaining, that’s for sure!
Probably of most interest yesterday was Murray electing to start Jayden from the rear all day!!...(he forgot to nominate 😳😳) but you wouldn’t have known looking at the numbers! In an incredible display of skilful manoeuvring and a lesson in taking the chances that are presented, Jayden steered that V4 seemingly effortlessly through the field in all of his heats. Pushing it to its limits and just holding on to the track at times, to finish amazing 3rd, 3rd and 2nd!
But let’s not take away from the competitive nature of the rest of the field! Zoe was clinical at the front finishing 1, 2 and 3 in her heats. She traded places several times with the V1 of Jett, who was exactly that all day...a JET. He finished 1, 2 and 1 in the heats.
Pressing behind them and trading places throughout the day were the first of our rookies, Callan and Chevy. Chelsea, Riley and Blake all had their moments today but most of their battles were at the back half of the pack.
The final would see Jett and Zoe lead off of the front row from a hard racing Jayden. Jayden would sneak inside of the 15 car and it would seem on paper a formality that the result was never in doubt. The V1 leading all the way from the 4 and the 15. But all three battled for the lead the entire race. It was clean, fast and exciting and each racer deserves their podium finish!
Behind them Cal and Chevy renewed hostilities with Chevy slotting into 4th on the third lap. She would hold the 35 car at bay for 13 laps until a chance came and Callan slipped up the inside of the 43. They would race side by side for nearly three laps until the last lap when the 35 gained a car length at the finish line.
Again, it was a great show from all our age groups and a great spectacle for the viewing public on the hill at Daylesford. Well done everyone.
We’ll see you all at Avalon in the 9th for our Vic Title! 👍🏻🏁
Well JQMV family, that is the first day of racing for the season, run and won! Here is my first go at a write up for our page, I’ll try and keep it short...ish 😜
Firstly, let me say it wasn’t perfectly smooth sailing for the first day on the calendar...but we’ll iron the bugs out as we go... for a start, there won’t be a burnout comp on next door every week! But, with the help of our committee and plenty of other volunteers along the way, we got it done. We had some excellent driving, lots of skill on show and in pretty good time, too!
We had an excellent car count for round one. 29 cars in total.
4 novices showing that they are learning more every meet.
6 junior restricted drivers who continue to develop their craft.
8 open 120 drivers who relish the speed of the fully open throttle.
And in our senior 160 class, we had 11 drivers showing off their skill, their race craft and what the younger drivers can aspire to be! AND almost half our field in this class were rookies stepping up for the first time!!
So, let’s get to the racing.
Our young Novices saw some good competitive racing over the day and the final continued that trend. After earning their front row start, Stuart and Cruz felt the pressure of Roman pushing hard on the first lap to quickly take second place as Stuart settled in at the front of the field. Two laps in and Cruz retakes second place as he made the most of a small gap left open. Whilst the next 10 laps wouldn’t see a change in positions, it was definitely racy between those three drivers. Congrats to Stuart for his first feature win for the year and Cruz and Roman taking out the minor placings.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see as much of the Jnr Rest. class during the day as I’d like so I’m going on numbers here. There were a couple of youngsters stepping up in class here with a few “experienced” Jnr drivers getting some solid front running time over their heats. With their cars still restricted, it often limits a lot of overtaking in this class but a couple of moves during the heats showed that these kids can still improve their race craft and positioning to to be ready to make a move when the chance arises. Again, without seeing the final, it appeared the experience of the top few cars shone through with no positional changes through its entirety. Holly got the jump on Ryder off the start and settled in as first and second. Falling in behind was Chase, unable to reign in the front two cars. Great job Holly on your first feature win of the season!
Stepping up next is our open 120 class. These kids get to experience the full unrestricted power of their 120cc engines and the quality of racing suddenly jumps to another level! Something that is relished by a rookie stepping but can be daunting, especially as the field size starts to increase substantially.
We had two rookies starting from the rear today and both Eliza and Cody worked their way around the track nicely through their heats. There was plenty of solid racing through the day with some excellent moves at times paying off for a couple of drivers. None more so than the 55 car of Logan and the V1 of Arthur. Both cars deserving of their front row start in the final.
The final got under way and unfortunately, the track started to dry up, be among a little bit one lane. But that didn’t stop a dominant display at the front from Logan, who drove away for a commanding first up win for the season! Whilst positions didn’t change behind him, it didn’t mean there wasn’t entertaining battles going on behind him. All drivers pressing the cars ahead of them, sweating on any small error that would allow a sneaky inside pass. Arthur and Cody fought to the finish line to take 2nd and 3rd whilst Leah and Jamie were hot on their heels all race and also battling each other for positions! A great race to all.
Finally, as always, we finished the day with our 160 class. It was potentially our most interesting class for the day...and it did not disappoint! I say this as we had 6 “experienced” racers, 4 rear of field rookies, and the returning Mallacai who would start right at the back of the bus during the heats with a restrictor in.
Our heats saw the pole sitter take every win from out in front but every winner also finished a heat in the back half of the field! Behind the front couple, a lot of interesting battles were going on with positional changes a constant.
By the final, the track was, unfortunately, very dry and dusty and one lane. But, again, it didn’t mean there wasn’t interestin racing going on throughout the race. Jayden would sit on pole, topping the points, but only just as Zak, Zoe and Jett were all only a position or two away from taking pole themselves!
Off the start, an incident saw the 56 of Zak and the V1 of Jett drop back into the field substantially. Jayden raced clear off his pole start and Zoe and Jemma settled in behind. Chevy and Callan made the most of the hectic start to sit 4th and 5th behind them, always pushing for an opening. From that point onwards, partly due to the deteriorating track, constant yellows back in the field saw the race finish in a stop start manner. The top five would not change and there wasn’t even any lap traffic to contend with due to regular restarts. Congratulations to Jayden for his first feature win of the year! It was well earned in a tight field!
A couple things we do learn watching this race...in the senior class...you don’t want to make an error or you’ll drop back in the field quick smart! Also, these rookies all pushed hard and can contend with the contenders any day!
So, congrats to all our winners and place getters, as well as all our drivers out there today, competing in round 1 at Avalon. I was a solid start to the season. Good luck to everyone who is competing in round 2 at Daylesford! 👍🏻🏁
